Tororo school finally gets latrine

Namwaya primary school in Nagongera sub county Tororo district finally has a pit latrine.

This is after the Daily Monitor published a story of a primary one pupil who confronted the district chairperson over lack of a pit latrine.

Messy Omalla surprised his school assembly when he tasked Tororo District chairperson Emmanuel Osuna to explain why his school operates without a pit-latrine.

Mr Osuna acknowledged the problem and pledged to intervene but blamed it on the laxity of the school management committee.

Namwaya primary school has a a population of over 800 pupils but operated without a pit latrine.

While handing over a newly constructed five stanza pit latrine to the school authorities, Osuna appealed to the school to be creative so as to lobby for services from various sources rather than embarrass leaders.
